Greetings Terry lovers! The event below looks wonderfully interesting; do check it out if you have a chance. Professor Toope always has interesting things to say, and I heard Asha Kaushal speak at the 6th Annual Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshop on Migration Studies that was held at the Liu Centre in March, and she was phenomenal. And Dr Affolder sounds wonderful too, so I think you’ll be in for a real treat of an afternoon if you go.
